Looked it up for you. . Very simple for HW-8,
Haven't looked at the Circuitry for the BJ, but it
is only the process of lifting the carrier and running it through
a simple circuit.

 About 4s
 SSB. . ..

 I think it would be very possible to convert one of the BJ
 into a DOUBLE Side band rig.. . .

 Many years ago, there was a MOD to the HW-8.  IT was a very
 simple mod that would

 convert the HW-8 to a DSB rig.  I believe this BJ would be
 a very simple conversion too.

  Hi Mike,


  There was some interest in a 4S SSB Net at one time

  but I'm not sure

  what happened to it.

  Maybe someone that owns a microphone will start it up

    My neurosurgeon told me that I have a cognitive


    (Army) that make keying unlikely.  I can copy but need

  do SSB to make

    things fun. Are there possibilities for 20 or 40

  central Oklahoma?

      Hi Dennis,


      I actually pride myself in how slow my mind works

  sometimes - so

      no problem there.

      If I hear you call at 3 wpm I will respond at 3

  wpm. (give me

      a few seconds to plug in my straight key).

      It really helps if you are on frequency. There

  ways to adjust

      Rockmite and Pixie type circuits to
 easily accomplish


      All of us - even the highest speed whiz bang

  operators - started at

      zero wpm.

      The only way to do it is to just do it.

      Don't worry about mistakes. I can guarantee

  that I make more mistakes

      during a net than all the other operators


      Practice on sending your call, name, state, and

  RST. That will be

      enough for a Net check-in. If you make a mistake

  sending your name, for

      example, just send a bunch of dits and try again.

  this as necessary.

      I'm not in a hurry.

      Give it a try next week.

  i listened in for the

  entire net. It sure sounded like it

        as much a buzz... however, being a “newbie”
 to CW

  and Morse, I can only

        pick out a letter or two on occasion. There seems

  be a renewal of

        interest in QRP and CW. Have you given thought

  providing a net for

        those of us that can use a Rockmite or Pixie and

  watts and WPM are

        interchangeable? I think this would be a good
 thing as

  an encouragement to

        new CW enthusiasts. 

  Let me know if and when you a “Slow Code

        for Slow Minds” net and I will be the first to



  72 and God bless.
